How to Transplant Gracefully

What do Mark Rothko, Marcel Duchamp, Edward Steichen and F. Scott Fitzgerald have in common? At one point in their life, they started over in a new place.

Maybe you aren’t traveling to a new continent, but if you find yourself being transplanted out of your geographic comfort zone, here are a few key tricks to keep yourself centered.

Documentary & fine art photographer, working primarily with 35mm, silver-based film

BIO

I seek to communicate the essence of Place in my work; the need for each other; and our relationship to the Other. Ken Heyman, Eugene Atget, James Nachtwey, and Mary Ellen Mark are my photographic mentors; and I seek to photograph as beautifully as Lord Dunsany wrote. I began photographing at age 16, and after pouring over Ken Heyman's "All the World's Family" in 1983, knew another way to realize an internal vision had found me. Writing was first, but I know I was born at the right time when I think of what photography has afforded me. I work primarily in 35mm format using silver-based film, and make my prints in a wet darkroom. Since 2011 I've also included my cell phone—currently a Galaxy S4—as part of my tools.

WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON

As creative professionals we have a craft we are passionate about but we often don't prioritize our time efficiently. In order to be successful in the real world, we need to armed with many other skills that may not come as naturally. My vision for CLW is to create a community where creative minds can expand their tool-sets to master the balance of time management. We can all benefit from learning and sharing our experiences. Curating talented instructors to teach skills across a variety of channels, CLW courses are available to help improve upon your process and open up new doors. So stay the course and preserve your passion while exploring new avenues and making valuable connections.
